Currently evaluating Oracle BPM 10gR3

For the next one month I want to be critically evaluating Oracle BPM 10gR3. 

 

Yes this is the new face and name of  BEA Aqualogic BPM 6.5 , now with Oraclelization it is called as Oracle BPM 10gR3. Too early to make a comment.

 

My aim is to see how well Oracle has leveraged and integrated the BEA Aqua logic BPM products with its other products to offer a complete suite.

 

Getting started was easy .... Installed Oracle BPM Studio 10.3.0.0.0  from the link below. To get started

Please visit: http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/bpm/index.html

Here you will find download link – for initially getting your feet wet purposes, download of studio should suffice. Also, there is a tutorial and link to docs.

 

Installation was smooth, took around 60 Minutes. I referred to this site for the product documentation

http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E13154_01/bpm/docs65/index.html

 

One glitch ....

It took me 20 minutes to figure out why the "Launch Workspace" icon was disabled. Figured out that after designing the process I had unfortunately clicked on either "outline" or the "Log Pane" that exist below and clicking on those panes dynamical change the Menu and disable certain icons.

 

More later
